Key resources

Building LCA is a science-based methodology for quantifying the lifetime environmental impacts and embodied carbon impacts of a building and the most effective tool available to measure the life-cycle carbon emissions of any construction project. We’ve compiled our top resources to help you get started and put life-cycle metrics to work for you.

Life Cycle Assessment for Buildings

Why it matters and how to use it

This ebook aims to demystify LCA to widen its use and, ultimately, reduce the environmental impact of the buildings and infrastructure projects.

The business case for building life-cycle assessment

This article points out why demand for building LCA is soaring and how you can include it in your offer, even if you are new to it.

Why building LCA?

Building LCA is now a mandatory part of planning regulations in many countries, and more are set to follow soon (refer to the regulations section below). Building LCA helps measure and reduce the embodied carbon and other environmental impacts of your building, achieve green building certifications (refer to the certifications section below), comply with regulations, and achieve voluntary targets (refer to the voluntary targets section below).

How to simplify your LCA process?

If you’ve struggled with old-style LCA tools and cumbersome Excel sheets, you’ll appreciate the efficiency boost offered by automating LCA through integration with design and modelling tools such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Building Energy Modelling (BEM) tools. The resources will guide you through the basics of building LCA automation.
